The Chattanooga Free Store is a mutual aid collective that operates in Chattanooga, TN. Our goal is to practice community care – a mindset where we take care of each other, we keep each other safe, fed, and healthy, and where we can rely on each other.
The Free Store is run by a coalition of organizers, volunteers, and community members. We are completely volunteer run, and no one is paid for this work. We also operate off of donations, meaning that all the money for our space, the essential items we distribute to our community, and all of the donated items we get, are from our wonderful supporters.
We are open every two weeks for regular free shopping, and have classes, meetings, and other events – you can find all that on our calendar. If you have any questions, feel free to reach ou
